    It's kind of hard with the glare but I do see some breaks in the paint. Do you have before and after? Could the paint be breaking in a void that it previously covered?

    that has to be shifting.if the riser was solid and no movement then the paint would not have broke,but no doubt in my mind the riser is shifting...even if it may be verry little movement.no good.all that work and now ther are 3 pc riser marks.sorry to see it.

    To answer your question.. I never noticed any shifting marks on either bows before. I always checked them on a regular basis and never saw anything untill I painted them.
